Sea Dragon Lodge & Villas was created by Steve & Gail Lane in 2007.

With over three decades of connection to the island, Steve & Gail have aimed to build a premium, experiential travel experience with an authentic Australian style. They strive to ensure that every guest has a wonderful relaxing stay, and enjoy sharing their knowledge of the island to further enhance your holiday.

Steve spent 40 years in corporate life as an entrepreneur in the Venture Capital, Telecommunications and the IT fields, and Sea Dragon Lodge is now providing an enjoyable change of pace. He is responsible for the overall management and operation of the business and enjoys meeting guests from all walks of life.

Gail is the driving force behind our quality control and ensuring everything is presented in an immaculate condition. She designed the decor in each of our accommodations to provide that “home away from home” feel.

Onsite Managers

If Steve & Gail aren’t present, you will be greeted by Broc & Dave. As well as being the on-site Managers, they also assist with the housekeeping and the general day-to-day operation of the business.  Dave and Broc have extensive tourism industry experience in the Whitsundays and more recently as the onsite managers for a small island resort off the Queensland coast. They are passionate about providing great service and immaculate presentation of the accommodation.

Marketing Manager

Behind the scenes, at some point you will be in touch with Kelly, who is our Administration & Marketing Manager. Kelly has a wealth of island knowledge gained from over 10 years in the tourism industry. She will be the one to organise your stay and will gladly assist with planning your Kangaroo Island holiday itinerary.

Maintenance Manager

Keeping everything working like a well-oiled machine, is our maintenance man Michael who previously helped build many of our current villas.  He knows the place inside and out!

Guest Services Team

Our hard working and enthusiastic Guest Services team – Samara, Tim and Aurelia, strive to help make your stay a memorable one and are always willing to help.

Our Cook

Your delicious meals will be prepared by local chef, Bridgette. Bridgette has her own permaculture farm gate, ‘Flavours of Petite Provence’, and therefore has a passion for local produce and delivers this through our seasonal menus.

What our guests say…

“Truly lovely”

We loved every luxurious detail of this beautiful place. We were met and introduced to all the amenities and assured that any queries would be dealt with by WhatsApp. We were in Kestrel, with the most wonderful view. The place looked brand new and we appreciated everything. Home made bread! Fridge well stocked with lots of goodies. And the meals we’d pre-ordered were delicious and so generous that there was enough for lunch next day. I really wish we could have stayed much longer….if we ever manage to return to Australia, this is the place we will head for. And there are kangaroos all around the property…

“Fantastic view”

We stayed for three nights in a Deluxe SPA Eco-Villa Osprey. The lodge was even better than we could imagine. What a spectacular view. And the villa was modern and light. The kitchen and bathroom were fully equipped.

After a day exploring the Island, you really came home. It was if the Kangaroos and Wallabies were waiting for us. A quick walk to the private beach for a swim in the Sea and then a relaxing bath in the private jacuzzi on the deck. In the evening there still was wildlife.

We had to move on, otherwise I would like to stay.

Trip Advisor Review  – Leeuwarden, The Netherlands

“Fabulous setting and great hospitality”

This lodge had been booked long before the devastating fires but at no time did we think of cancelling.  The setting is fabulous with views to a small cove and along the coast. In the late afternoon the kangaroo come out to play as well.

The lodge itself was very comfortable with everything we needed. Breakfast supplies are provided.

We opted for half board and a prepared home cooked meal was delivered including starter and dessert. On a road trip it is fantastic to get such good home cooked food.
